Detectives from the Baltimore County Violent Crimes Unit continue to investigate an incident involving a violent car-jacking in the 7800 block of Peninsula Expressway just before midnight on Saturday.

The victim, a 42-year-old man, was driving home when he began experiencing car trouble and pulled to the side of the roadway. While checking to see what the trouble was, a vehicle with the two suspects stopped. The suspects approached him and while one pointed a handgun at him the other took his cell phone and wallet. The victim attempted to flee and was shot by the suspect once in a lower extremity. The victim continued to flee and managed to flag down another motorist who called 9-1-1.

One of the suspects fled in the vehicle they arrived in while the other stole the victim's vehicle, which was later located just inside Baltimore City.

Anyone with information on the suspects involved in this violent crime is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.
